I hesitate to recommend a film that really deserves to be slightly obscure… I don’t share all my secrets, but this, I suppose, should be shared. Perhaps one of the best movies I saw this last year, Control (a film about the lead singer of the Joy Division, Ian Curtis) has been at the front of my mind for the last two weeks since I saw it. The acting is brilliant and the reenactment of Curtis and his music goes straight to the heart. I am a believer in Joy Division. Here’s the trailer.
